Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Award
The Adaptive Structures and Material Systems Award recognizes significant contributions to the sciences and technologies associated with adaptive structures and/or materials systems. The award is intended to honor a lifetime of achievement and sustained impact in the field and is given only to a senior researcher.
